    I work at Mercy in Downtown Baltimore,MD. I have been recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease as of April 26th. I am interested in learning more about this disease and what I can eat and what not to; as well as how to prepare gluten-free meals. I have three cats and an awesome b/f that is excellent at keeping me on track of my goals. Most of the time I tend to ignore his antics, but I know he wants me to be the best me I can be. LOL!

  1. Anyone From Md

    Hi I'm from MD and wanted to know if their are other marylanders with celiac's disease.
  2. New To Celiac's

    hi I am new to celiac's disease and have been diagnosed since the 26th of April. For a year I had similar symptoms as you do and I thought this is not normal and something is not right. I made a appointment with a gastroenterologist and he said well you have a 5% chance of having celiac disease and gave me samples for the probiotic align. I had severe stomachaches and stabbing pain in the right lower abdomen that I thought it was my gallbladder. Sure enough all my blood tests, biopsies, x-rays all came back normal or the x-ray showed gas. I didn't believe a word of it so I went for a second opinion. Thankfully I found Dr. Rai of the Gastro center of Maryland and he confirmed that did indeed have celiac's disease. I thought THANK GOD!!!!!!!!! Finally an answer and now how to live with it. I so relieved that I found an answer and I'm not in pain when I eat,but am still getting headaches and definitely still hungry most of the time. Does anybody still have to force themselves to eat? Most of the time I find I don't want to eat or I look around to find how do I make anything using the gluten-free products I just bought. Mostly I have been eating gluten-free chex cereal, applegate gluten-free roast beef and cheese, fruits, veggies and still don't feel full. I also wonder if anybody has struggles with depression or weight gain before making the discovery of celiac's disease? Thanks for reading and good luck everybody on this journey. Jessica

    Is HD similar to Eczema? I have been told my whole life the reason for my itchy skin is because of eczema. Are these two skins problems related or one and the same?
